Suggest treatment for headache and dizziness

I have headaches throughout the day on the left side of my head. In the evening it progresses to ice pick headaches staying in one particular point at every event without any vision or nerve-related single-sided bodily anomalies. Occasionally these headaches are so intense that I stumble while standing. I had a series of this headaches while driving and the suddenly subsided to a typical throbbing headache while leaving me exhausted, nauseous, and dizzy. Do I need to see a doctor? I ve read that it is rare that this could mean a blood clot or aneurysm, but I ve had a history of brain trauma as a child.
